three of those concepts are going to be on the floor of the united states senate for a vote, and they're all going to lose. why? because they're not the solution to the problem we all face. >> on this vote the yeas are 54, the nays are 46. >> reporter: in the end, as vice president biden presided, the background check amendment failed to clear the 60-vote threshold needed to pass. the concealed firearm measure and the ban on assault weapons. also failed. but late in the day, senate democrats-- joined by family members of victims of gun violence-- pledged to keep up the fight. >> i want everyone to understand this is just the beginning not the end. the forces so obsessed with defeating any commonsense reforms whatsoever, they lost site of big picture. >> reporter: and president obama spoke minutes later from the white house rose garden. >> no single piece of legislation can stop ever act of violence and evil. we learned that tragically just two days ago. but if action by congress could have saved one person, one child, a few hundred, a few thousand, if it could have prevented those peo

hunting. members of the united states senate and congress own those firearms. paul ryan, for example, owns one of those and goes hunting with them. >> ifill: that one was a forgone concliewrkz as were the magazine clips, but the background checks not so much. >> our concern with the universal background checks is we think the problem we see is you have to fix the nix system. the first thing you need to do is fix the nix system which is why our industry is funding an initiate toif work at the grass-roots level to work with the states falling down on the jobs and not getting the background checks-- getting the information into the background check system. the system is only as good as the information that's in it, and background checks that are incompleted and accurate don't help anybody. having more of those background checks that are incomplete also doesn't help anybody. >> ifill: as far as you're concerned even though the president-- or harry reid said, this is round one-- both of them said it-- you think for the federal level this argument is over. >> no, i don't think so at all. i met w

who is using the united states senate and those who didn't vote. you're right. lots of well-meaning people yesterday voted their conscience and voted the right way. but the nra uses the senate and they threaten individuals. and people succumb to those threats. the good people of sandy hook didn't do any threatening of people. they pleaded for the help for themselves and in memory of their children and they pleaded for help for the rest of the country. it is the nra who threatened people with a primary or with their election results. they are the people who are abusing the process and unfortunately, there were those who listened to them yesterday and said no, no! you are not going to use me. i am going to do the right thing by people in the united states of america. and i'm going to do the right thing by our children in protecting their lives. that's the job i was sent here to do. that's what the people of my community are asking me to do. that's what i believe in my heart and in my conscience is the right direction. >> john: connecticut democratic representative rosa delauro

is something the senate almost never does before. here your illustrious united states senators are overcoming a filibuster to begin debate on a gun package today. to appreciate how crazy the filibuster was in practice, this was not a filibust over the bill, a filibuster of debating the bill. remarkably routine. what was remarkable was that the filibuster failed on the strength of support of most of the democrats and 16 republicans. only two democrats joined by 29 republicans in trying to block the debate, arkansas's mark pryor and alaska's mark begich. a deal was worked out between democrat joe manchin and republican pat toomey on expanding background checks. joe manchin, who is a gun positive democrat from west virginia with an a rating from the nra has been looking to make a deal like this for months, ever since the massacre of sandy hook elementary school in december. he made it clear he wanted to work on gun safety not from republicans in the aisle but in the room at the negotiating table. he was pretty optimistic the nra would cooperate. >> i want to call our friends at nra and bring the

of day in the united states senate. and if this bill were to ever pass into law, its impact would be to hurt workers, not help them. how many more times do we need to waste taxpayer dollars on political messaging bills like this rather than pursue legislation that will actually help the middle class? 10 more times? 20 more times? is this all we can expect to accomplish over the next year and a half? americans want democrats and republicans to work together. let's end the political posturing. let's get america back to work. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from minnesota. mr. kline: mr. speaker, i yield three minutes to a real leader on this issue, the gentleman from arkansas, mr. womack. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from arkansas is recognized for three minutes. mr. womack: thank you, mr. speaker. i thank the chairman. you know, mr. speaker, our framers were visionaries. they had the foresight to not only establish constitutional principles and processes, that address the challenges of their day, but s
